Dr. Atkins would be proud. The notoriously sweaty comic monologist Mike Daisey is heating up the frying pan for his latest one-man show, Mysteries of the Unexplained: Bacon! In Daisey's "Mysteries" series, he tackles "trivial elements of the modern world," like Facebook, and, in this case, thin, smoked slices of the back and sides of a hog—and all that has to do with the world. Swine flu and Hasidic Jews are just some of the proposed topics for Daisey's signature rants, during which he will actually be cooking the ever popular breakfast side dish. It doesn't get more treyf than that.
